2-year-old’s ‘murder’ sparks anger?

Some angry residents of Chinese – a community at Kasoa – have threatened to sack all Nigerian nationals from the community if government does not relocate them.

They issued the threat following the recent murder of a two-year-old boy named Junior in the community.

According to the residents, they would take the law into their hands if their call on government fails to yield any immediate response.

They have hinted that they will move from one house to another in the community to evict Nigerian nationals living at Chinese.

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM, an angry resident emphasised: “We will embark on a house to house tour and sack all Nigerians in the area. This is the only way to prevent our women and children from falling prey to these Nigerians”.

Reports indicated that the body of the two-year-old boy, who went missing on April 24, was found under rubble.

Sources said the boy was sighted in a black saloon car with Nigerian registration number which sped off.

The angry residents attributed the high incidence of criminal activities in the area to the presence of Nigerian nationals in the area.

A concerned resident also indicated that “their presence here is putting the lives of women and children in danger.”

The residents also blamed cash-hungry landlords who rented their rooms to Nigerian nationals without finding out their source of living.

They added that when the Nigerians allegedly committed crime in the places they resided, they would quickly relocate to another house or area.

“The landlords don’t make any good background checks before giving their rooms out to them,” another resident noted adding that only one Nigerian national would approach a landlord to rent a room but later, they would rent the room or apartment to other Nigerians without the knowledge of the landlord.
